working on this project on july of 2008. we had two, two-unit buildings proposed on this site and we met with the east slope design review board, the design review board, we did a number of meetings with them, initially before they even filed the building permit. after we filed the building permit we made modifications to the design and filed with the planning commission and we were asking for a parking variance so we could keep the square footage of the building so it could accommodate the two, two-unit buildings. we were asked at that meeting to avoid doing a variance and reduce the size of the building. we have gone from 4 units to 2 units and now it's single families, we have lost over 1700 square feet, we have gone through a number of meetings with neighborhood and all that discussing the facade and the bulk of the building. . >> so when were those meetings that you held with the neighborhood. >> initially on july 28, i actually have a chronology, i can share that with you. july 28 of 2008, we meet again on august 11 of 2008, we filed a building permit in december of 2009, then,
report is an update from julie labonty, wsip. >> good afternoon, the focus of wsip has been on the large change of the calaban project and the status of the program. i will give a brief update. on the calaban project, i am pleased to report that the director will sign the seqa for the site and the first permit approval received today. the contract observation hill is proceeding well, they are averaging 15,000 cubic yards a day, that is better than expected. the contractor did a good job of protecting the site and responding to the major storms that struck the bay area a couple of weeks ago. noah does remain a big challenge for us on that project. so far we have been able to control that issue. it's not impacted construction. but we definitely need to keep that issue as one of our top priority in the field. it's actually the third highest risk on this project. talking about risks in our december update, we will elevate our number 1 and number 2 risks on the project to the trend level. which means that the likelihood of those risks to materialize is becoming greater. which means we must s

in january for those funds that will be flowing in july. so any new programs or expansion of programs, i think would hopefully be able to begin. as of july 1st. in terms of the structure of those programs, some of the ideas that we have had have been, for example, how do we link our homeownership counseling organizations with other opportunities where families come in to access services? so do we need to link them up with family resource centers? so someone comes in to a family resource center for information about for example, subsidized child-care, that could be an opportunity for someone who isn't necessarily thinking about homeownership. but when they start to think about their finances in general, if it's a linkage with the school district. for example, the city has their baby bond program, so that every child starting in elementary school can have some sort of little mini ida. maybe that is an opportunity for some people to think about their finances. so i think linking in that might be more effective. talking to people and saying have a bad credit score, come in and talk to us.
